Alice Arm Holds
Weekly Debate
The weekly debate of the Alice
Arm Debating Sooiety was held in
the Coliseum, on Tuesday evening,
when a. reoordnumber of persons
attended.        r' ->
A short business meeting was
held previous to the debate, and at
it's oonclusion the debate was
proceeded with.
The subjeot for the evening was:
"Resolved that the people of the
world are getting worse, mentally,
morally and 'physically." Those
speaking for the affirmative were:
Miss Nettie Hogburg, J. Anderson,
C. P. Riel. Negative speakers Were:
Miss Zorka Sutilovioh, M. Petersen
A. D. Yorke.
Miss Sutilovioh opened the
debate. She said: The world is
up-side-down. It has been fermenting for 2,500 years but is now
settling down and will be better.
People are.now more intellectual
than they ever were, and a people
of intelligence are a people of good
morals.
Miss Hogburg, who was the
first speaker for the affirmative
side, said in the course of her
remarks, that the ancients
knew a lot of things that the
moderns did not know. People
in years gone by were physioally
superior to people of today. No
dope fiends and divorces in the days
of our grand-parents.
M. Petersen said: everything is
improving, sanitation is better.
The ancients did not possess the
mentality to build railroads,
machinery, etc Surgery is
improving in a wonderful manner.
He then took the audience on a
round-the-world trip of 200 years
ago, in order to show the great
improvements wrought since that
time.
J. Anderson in order to
show that the people are not
improving said. If a man is not
right morally, he is below the
standard mentally and physically.
The morality of the people is
very low. The number of divorces
are a scandal, and so is the low
birthrate.
A. D. Yorke, whose fifteen
minutes were gone before he got
fairly started said: our knowledge
of hygiue is greater, infant mortality is smaller. Modern people
understand how to utilize the
proper foods. Strict inspection
of all foods are made, and physical
endurance is as good as in days
gone by, as explorers have proved.
C. P. Riel who was the last
speaker for the affirmative, said:
The big families of olden days are
gone, and so are the rugged
men and women, Our mode of
living is all wrong. Doctors were
not needed in days gone by, but
we are now a nation of invalids.
Our mentality is not improving,
Anyox Skating Rink
The work, of making a skating
at Anyox; by , the .Community
League, is well under way. The
rink is located on the -flats; near
the children's playground, and
measures 70ft. by 120ft., which
will provide a sheet of ice giving
lots of room for e'veryone. The
rink is ideally situated, being close
to the'centre of the most thiokly
populated part of the town.
The rink is just about ready for
the skating fraternity to get out
and stretch a leg, and with a continuation of the present cold
weather a large number of people-
will undoubtedly avail themselves
of the opportunity to indulge in
the king of winter sports during
the coming week.
Skating has already commenced
on the rink at the mine, and it 1b
now up to the hookey players of
the town to, draw up a programme
of hockey games for the coming
season.
Man Killed and 4 Injured
at Premier Mine
Coroner J. Conway and Dr. P.
Whelaiij of Anyox, made a hurried
trip to Stewart, during the week,
in connection with an accident,
which took place at the Premier
mine, when Carl Booy, an Austrian
lost his life, and four others severely injured, when several boxes of
powder exploded in the underground workings.
Coroner J. Conway, held an
investigation, but no light could be
thrown on the subject, as th» only
person near the powder was killed
outright, and so severe was the
explosion that no part of the body
could be found. _,
On the return journey from the
Premier mine the sleigh Containing
J. Conway and Dr. Whelan, did a
little hurdling on- the side hill,
throwing the Doctor out and
giving him a lone slide down the
hill. He climbed back up none the
worse for his experience.
or' why are our insane asylums
overflowing. The late war also
proved that our mentality has' not
improved.
Miss Sutilovioh followed with a
rebuttal of five minutes, in which
she extensively criticized the
remarks of her opponents, and thus
ended a very interesting debate.
On the vote being taken those
speaking for the affirmative were
declared the winners, the vote
being; worse 27, better 23.
The subject was an excellent one
for debating purposes. A large
crowd was present, and the speakers were in good form. Nearly all
the speakers spoke for the full
fifteen minutes allowed, and several were disappointed when time
was oalled on them by the Chairman.
Weekly Meeting of
Anyox Community
League Council
The regular weekly meeting of
the Community League Council
was held in the Reoreation Hall on
Wednesday evening, December 6th.

Treas. Lowry, Councillors Mrs.

moved by Mr. Rowley and seconded
by Mr. Sherman that they be
adopted as read. This w
carried.   • \ /
The Seoretary reported as
follows: That Mr. Harper, a
qualified teacher of piano, violin
and voice, had'arrived in Anyox on
Thursday last and had met the
committee, the same morning, and
that the chances of Mr, Harper
located in Anyox are good, and he
would probably return after the
first of the year; The proposal of
the Finance Committee had been
forwarded unofficially to the Mine
Club, pending action by the Counoil,
In the meantime a proposed
amendment to Paragraph four of
the Finance Committee's proposal
to the Mine Club had been received.

the Finance Committee with the
Chairman of the. Reoreation were

disouss the gymnasium and. it's
equipment. .
Mr. Rowley reported ~ arrange
merit for flooding the surface of
the ground at the Flats for the
rink. A man has been detailed to
commence the work on Wednesday
night. Mr. Seidelman stated that
he had'made enquiries in conneotion
with the basket-ball jerseys used
last season and had been told that
they were all left in the property
room at Recreation Hall. He also
told of trouble: collecting the
several base-ball uniforms whioh
were still -out. Mrs. McKay, in
talking about the music teacher
said that she hoped he would
make up his mind to return! and
take up teaching, as everybody
was very much impressed with
Mr. Harper and his abilities.
A letter was read from H.
Bromley Coleman, of Vancouver,
stating that he represented a
oonoert troupe of five, .and wanted,
to know what guarantee the
League would offer for, a performance of his company in Anyox.
The Council deoided. that no guarantee be made, and if Mr. Coleman
decided to visit Anyox, the League
would do business with him, on a
fifty-fifty basis.
A letter was read from the Mine
Club, asking that clause four be
amended, so as to give the Mine

Alice Arm Skating Rink
The Alice Arm Skating Rink,
will, in a day or two, be again
ready for the knights of the silvery
flashing blades. A large amount
of work has been done by a number
of enthusiasts during the week,
and to whom great credit is due
for their public spiritedness.
The dressing room roof has been
repaired, and new stove pipe installed. The pipe line has been
covered and a good pressure of
Water is.now being obtained. Day
and night shifts have been flooding
the rink during the past few days,
which owing to the porous nature
of the ground, was no easy job, as
a lptof water was soaked up in the
gravel. A sheet of ice, however,
now covers the entire rink, and it
is only a matter of putting on more
water to build up the ice, If'the
present cold weather continues for
a few more days, skating will
again be in full swing.
Fire at Alice Arm
The cabin of B. Jones was the
soene of a small fire, on Sunday,

the scene, and the "bucket brigade"
quickly extinguished the fire before

Mr. Jones had left the oabin a
short time previously, and had left
a lighted candle near the bed, and
it is thought that the candle drop-
ped on to the bed. Damage was
done to the bed clothes and other
articles and a hole burned in the
roof.

The Canadian Dollar.
The {act that the Canadian
dollar is a fraction above par in the
United States, is a source of great
satisfaction to all Canadians, Several causes are to be found for the
3uick recovery of the Canadian
ollar, from a discount of 17 cents
on the dollar to the present happy
stage. Canada was the first
country at war that at the close of
hostilities, settled down to real
hard work, and the energy of the
people, coupled with the absence
of big labor troubles, very quickly
produced results. Several other
causes also contributed towards
bringing the dollar back to par,
chief of which was the bountiful
crops of all kinds produced
throughout the Dominion this year;
also the large number of American
tourists, who, it is estimated spent
$100,000,000 in this country
during the last year. What
American money has came into
the country via the bootlegger route
no one knows, but it has been
enormous, and has added
materially to the wealth of the
country. The big mines of northern
Ontario and B. C. have also helped
to bring the dollar back to par.
The future of Canada is brighter
than any country in the world,
and with good sound common-sense
government the population of
Canada should nearly double itself
before the census of 1931 are taken.
Home Work.
The recent school convention at
Penticton touched on one particular subject which is about due for
much practical consideration, and
which should not be allowed to
lapse, says a writer in an exchange.
Continuing he says, the proportion
of school work given to pupils to
handle at home is out of all reason,
and the only persons who seem to
be ignorant on that point are the
teachers themselves. In the
course of my travels I hear a great
many different opinions expressed
on all sorts of subjects, but I have
always found a striking unanimity
amongst parents on the iniquity of
excessive home work for their
children. To what extent they
voice their sentiments in the right
quarters I am not able to say
probably they accept the situation
under silent protest, as it were.
But it should be represented to
the teaching fraternity that the
proper place for learning lessons
is primarily the school—and not at
home, and that some consideration
should be shown in the adjustment
of studies—Grand Forks Gazette.
The logging operations now
being carried on at Alice Arm,
will prove a boom to the camp
during the coming winter, and
very probably for a number of
years to come. But let us not lose
sight of the fact that Alice Arm is
primarily a mining camp, and will
be a mining camp long after the
last log is made into paper. -,• It is
for everyone to work for the
mining interests of the camp all
the time. The logging operations
are a nice little side line, and will
benefit everyone more or less, but
the timber wealth of the district
is but a drop in the ocean compared
with the mineral wealth.
Mobile to be Developed
A company known as the Mobile
Mines, Limited, with a capitalization of $700,000, has been formed
for the purpose of developing the
Mobile group, a property of seven

iClub,   the  entire   control of the
■commercial activities at the Mine
|now operated by the League.
Under the head   of   unfinshed
I business, and because of his notice
I of motion   from   the   preceding
meeting, Mr. Lowry moved that
the proposal  as outlined by the
I Finance Committee of the League
I in connection with recreation, etc,
at the mine be forwarded to the
Mine Club officially.
In connection with the unofficial
' suggestion of the Mine Club Committee, Mr. Rowley moved and
Mr. Noel seconded that it be filed
for the time being. This was
carried.
There was some discussion regarding a gallery for the gymnasium, It was thought that if some
seating arrangement could be
carried out, especially at the rear
end of the hall overlooking the
floor, that it would cause considerable satisfaction as it would better
enable spectators to see the differ
ent contests. The Christmas
entertainment was also discussed
to some extent.
Mr. Rowley suggested that the
League accept the auspices of a
proposed concert for the benefit of
the Province Christmas Tree Fund.
Mr. H. A. Berry is the promoter of
this concert,1 and Mr. Rowley
moved that the League get behind
it. This was seconded • by Mr.
Sherman and carried.
Mr. Selfe reported that the new
picture machine for the Mine Hall
had been ordered and would arrive
shortly.
Highgrading in Northern
Ontario Mines
Highgrading on a large scale has
been unearthed in northren Ontario mining circles of late, three
distinct cases having been exposed
and some thirteen men placed
uuder arrest. In a oase some time
ago, a culprit who admitted the
theft of $1,500 worth of silver was
sentenoed to thirty days in jail.
More severe sentences, however,
have reoently been handed out.
According to information gathered by the various mining
companies, a systematic robbing of
the mines by tho men employed
has been oarried out. In one case,
one of the employees made it a
practice to steal 33 pounds of
precipitates every night' when on
shift. These he hid away and a
pal later transferred them to
Toronto where they were melted
down anoVthe spoils divided.
Employees of the Dome were in
the habit when high grade pockets were opened up, to slip chunks
of this ore, running 50 per cent,
pure gold into their pockets. This
was sent to a pal at North Bay
who disposed of it  at  Montreal.
At the Mclntyre mine they were
pouring gold and shortly after the
moulds had been filled and long
before the bricks were cold, a gold
brick disappeared. A third of the
briok was eventually found buried
near Porcupine.

N§ee Al Falconer for Wood or
Coal
So far, we are experiencing an
""unusual winter.   No snow has yet
fallen in the district, the ground
being as bare as in the month of
July. Such a thing has never been
known to happen since the white
man came up the inlet.
The power saws are busy in the
woods these days, ohewing up the
big logs into stove wood lengths.
The themometer is creeping
down to the zero mark, but who
cares how cold it is when a nice
sheet of ice is forming on the
skating rink.
Some good skating has been
obtained across the Kitsault river
during the week.
Albert Ferris, an old-timer of the
camp, having worked here in 1915,
arrived in town and intends to
stay the winter.

Two dazzling eyes,
With baby stare,
A little smile,
And cute bobbed hair,
Two dancing feet,
A shoulder sway,
A silly laugh,
A vamping way.
A crowd of men,
A social swirl,
. And there you are—
The modern girl.
